Best Places to Play Pokies in Tasmania

Pokies in Tasmania

Pokies in Tasmania can be played at casinos, pubs, clubs and hotels. I visited Tasmania Wrest Point Casino to play Pokies, the largest and oldest casino in the state.

I was surprised that Tasmania was Australia’s first state to have legal casinos.

Also I was so excited to play lotteries, I tried my luck playing OZ lottery and the ticket cost me $1.50.

The jackpots at Oz Lotto start at $3 million and increase each week until won. I was not lucky enough to win the game.

Pokies were my next choice, and I won some games playing pokies in Tasmania.

In total, there are 3000 pokies to play in Tasmania. These are located across the state in clubs, hotels, pubs, RSLs, and taverns, including two land-based casino venues. The Department of Liquor and Gaming regulates all these pokies machines.
